glowing header pipe

Just one of my header pipes is glowing red. What is the deal? I have a micron full system. The pipe that is glowing is the far left one as you're sitting on the bike. Its fine when I'm riding but if it is sitting still it will start glowing hot in about 40 seconds. Anybody have a clue?

Re: glowing header pipe

I think it can also be a rich condition as well? Excess fuel being burnt off in the header?
